People

 

 

The How We Thrive gathering came together through the participation and contributions of many people, networks, partners and sponsors.

Indigenous hosting collective

 

We took another step in bringing Indigenous knowledge into the centre of the How We Thrive gathering. We designed and hosted the first afternoon, the closing, and other sessions in between.

 
 
 

Design, arts & hosting team

 

We shaped the theme, conversations and events at Thrive. We practiced “how we thrive” in our meetings, taking the time to build understanding and trust, so we could go beyond business-as-usual and create something fresh and real. We saw the 2019 gathering as one highlight on this ongoing journey.

 
 
 
 

Incubation team

Our team added energy, inspiration and hands-on help with outreach and logistics. Click on the photos to find out why we got involved in Thrive.

 
 
 

Stream leaders

 

We designed and facilitated nine-hour learning streams for groups of 15-30 people.

 
 
 

And more…

 
 
 
 

Special thanks to our partners and sponsors!
